The show is a display of  light, music, colour and water acrobatics  and its first performance was on May 19th 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition and designed by CARLES BUIGAS. The monument was fully restored for the 1992 Olympic Games of Barcelona.

The music ranges from film music shows, classical music shows such as The Godfather, Disney movies, Star Wars, E.T, Lord of the Rings, and the most awaited one: “Barcelona” by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé.

The long stairs from the Fountain to the the Palau Nacional building (now the MNAC Museum) are the best place to observe the show.

This fountain is one of those memories one never forgets…
